Wat Tham Suea, Tiger Cave Temple

Legend has it that a real tiger once lived in this cave in the region of Krabi. Locals began to honor the animal as a sacred being and brought him gifts, before the big cat disappeared as suddenly as he had arrived. Others think that the name comes from the shape of the limestone cave, not unlike that of a claw. The main room of the temple is surrounded by small grottoes, dedicated to meditation, as 250 monks still live at Wat Tham Suea. Don’t leave without climbing the 1,237 steps behind the main temple, as the view from the top, 600m up, is breathtaking.
